What’s for breakfast this morning? Head to one of our favorite Amsterdam bakeries for something hot out of the oven!
Le Fournil de Sébastien
The first French baker to open a bakery in the Netherlands, Sébastien Roturier and his Dutch wife Susan have been operating Le Fournil de Sébastien since 2007. In those few years they have developed quite the following, with many people visiting the Zuid Amsterdam bakery daily to taste the delicious breads and pastries fresh from the oven. Yummy sandwiches too!

Hartog’s Volkoren Bakkerij
More than 200 years ago the Hartog family began selling their whole wheat breads in their Amsterdam bakery. The tradition continues, as the bakery still uses a 100 year old recipe for their bread. The long lines out front attest to the delicious products. A few years ago the bakery opened up a sandwich shop, Hartog’s Boterham, down the street.

Vlaamsch Broodhuys was started in 1996 by Dimitri Roels and his wife Diante. Dimitri studied as a chef and cooked in some of the best restaurants in the Netherlands, Belgium and France. He became interested in bread and the Vlaamsch Broodhuys was born. They create delicious breads, pastries, cookies and sandwiches in their ten bakeries around Amsterdam. Their baked goods and sweets are excellent and we definitely recommend Vlaamsch Broodhuys as a top lunch spot. The sandwiches are fantastic!

You’ll spot Le Perron at many weekly street markets around Amsterdam including the Noordermarkt and Sunday Market. They have regular bread as well as yummy pastries, sweets and special loaves. I am a huge fan of their bread with figs and rosemary, it is an amazing breakfast treat with a nice hot cup of tea on a chilly fall day.
Iambe bakes organic breads with care at their two Amsterdam bakeries. They’ve won prizes in the past for best croissants and best saucijzenbroodje in town. Other than their tasty baked goods, iambe is also special because they are a social workplace providing jobs for those with disabilities. They have delicious sourdough breads as well as whole grain loaves and other goodies.
